    1 thought on “Jung and Tarot: An Archetypal Journey”

    1. There is no one definitive book about the Tarot. Throughout the centuries, each one has been written with a different slant, a particular viewpoint and even different motives. What we've got to remember is that we are approaching the Holy here. Some modern writers on the subject that are financially dependent on the sales of books tend to forget that in their haste to be "popular" with the general reading public. They're easily detected by paying visits to their websites. If the visitor sees all [...]

    2. I refer to this book a lot. Because it has the word "tarot" in the title, it sounds like a guide to reading tarot cards, and I assume someone could use it that way. More than that, it uses the tool of the major arcana of the tarot deck to write long reflections on each of the archetypal images they represent. The entries draw on the writings of Jung, images of the archetype in art and literature. I find archetypes to be valuable concepts in writing and my copy of this book is well-used.

    3. Ine of my absolute favorite Tarot books. I wish I hadn't lost my copy & intend to replace it. I wish it would come out on KindleI first read a friend's borrowed copy when it came out in the 80's. I finally snagged my own copy in the 90'sd lost it with all my stuff in 2004 when I became homeless. It's on my "to replace soon" list!

    4. This piece should be read by everyone. Not only enthusiasts of tarot or Jung, but anyone with a will to go deep inside one's path in life. Sallie presents an archetypical journey through the symbolic images of the Marseilles tarot deck and utilizes not only of junguian psychology, but also of art and mythology to illustrate. Her insights on the cards are great and sometimes very personal, which is also great! The good thing about her lecture is that she departs from the Marseilles cards but also [...]

    5. Interesting, but only deals with the major arcana. Also, Nichols' writing is a tad repetitive. I wouldn't recommend this one as an introduction to the tarot, but it's a good supplement to any collection of books on the subject. I recommend reading Robert M. Place's wonderful book, The Tarot: History, Symbolism, and Divination instead.

    6. Very rich exploration of the major arcana, full of symbolism, mythology, art, told in a friendly voice. The author presents many ideas of Jung as they appear naturally in the cards. Not every card has a clear connection and none is forced; other cards do or have several and these are offered alongside other possible interpretations. Never is only one option given, fantastic for inner exploration via the cards with this book as guide. Shame only that she neglects the minor arcana.

    7. If you read tarot or work with tarot cards, this is an interesting book to give you some deeper insight into the cards, especially if you enjoy archetypes as much as I do. You'll find that as you go through life, there are recurring themes which are prevelent, and in using the Jung and Tarot, if you find yourself attracted to certain cards of the Major Arcana, it will give you some deeper insight into your self. Note: This is not a book to buy and leaf through for an explanation on the cards whi [...]

    8. This book had some interesting content about Jung and feminism as well as some strong connections to literature and visual art. However, Nichols (like others in the Tarot community) posits, repeatedly, that visual art is superior to books/words for inspiring creativity and imagination, and I wholly disagree with this argument. But I found her claims--as counterarguments--helpful for strengthening my own argument in favor of reading everything one can find, including the frequently maligned littl [...]

    9. Another interesting tarot book--I particularly liked how this one shied away from being new age-y and focused instead on the psychological interpretations of the major arcana, which were similar to Rachael Pollock's "78 Degrees of Wisdom" in many ways (in particular how both books described the major arcana as representing a psychological process of growth and development). The style is associative and digressive, bringing in various subjects from art and mythology around the world, but I liked [...]

    10. This was a good book overall but in some cases I feel like she was stretching the material to fit her thesis and not the other way around. She also does not touch on the art history behind certain images which I feel takes away from the understanding. It's very long and took me almost 3 years to get through but I would recommend this book as long as you read it with a grain of salt.

    11. This book was incredible! The concepts expressed in this book are applicable to anyone on any kind of spiritual path. It has also deepened my respect and understanding for the figures of the Major Arcana. Highly recommended!

    12. I really enjoyed how Nichols writes. She operates by looking at the card and how each visual element on the card. Interestingly enough, she taught me how to write about art.

    13. Found it to be a nice, fairly easy, way to slide into deciphering what an archetype was; read years back but still have peaks back at it every so often.

    14. B This is not your typical Tarot guide; instead, it meditates on the different Tarot cards, the characters, how they interact - with a Jungian focus. For the focused Tarot reader.

    15. wait can you guess? yep, art thearpy! lol, but this one is good. if you like tarot, history and psychology then you should give it a go.

    16. oh the literalness of this was a little much. i only made it through the first chapter. like, duh, tarot is about archetypes.
